Almaden Valley Hosting San Jose District 10 and Senate District 15 Election Forum

Almaden Valley Community Association will host an election forum on October 18, 2012 in the parish hall at Holy Spirit Church in Almaden Valley.

The forum will begin at 7pm and should wrap up by approximately 9pm. The schedule of events will include a debate between San Jose District 10 council candidates Robert Braunstein and Johnny Khamis, and a debate between Jim Beall and Joe Coto, candidates for the California Senate District 15.

Two local ballot measures will also be discussed. Measure A would increase the county sales tax by 0.125 cents to bring it to an even 8.5%. Measure D will increase the county’s minimum wage rate from $8 to $10 per hour.
